4/22/2014 class @CP2

Come celebrate today, Nancy & Joan's Birthdays.

Today's card is using the new stamp and stencil combination from Penny Black,
did I mention I love this! 
I only wish they included the mask with the stencil and then it would be pure perfection!

We will be keeping it simple today stamping then using the stencil to add color.
This is the most basic use for this product, but there are many other possibilities
that we will explore in the future.
Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft sheet
black edger
wink of stella (orange used here)

Have a wonderful weekend,
Susan *Ü*

4/15/2014 class @CP2

Today's technique was recommended by one of your classmates.
We are doing an emboss resist with distress inks and the mini blender that we used last week.
I just love that mini blending tool!
I used two brand new background stamps that have been in my stash for quite some time.
We will also be using a die cut sentiment from Elizabeth crafts designs,
these cut beautifully and the paper just pops out of the die, gotta love that.
I will bring the supplies for these two color choices,
if you prefer other colors you will need to bring the distress inks and foam blending tools.

Please bring your basic class kit
silver edger
ball point glue pen or xyron X 150
(for die cuts)

That should do it, enjoy this beautiful weather,
hope to see you around.

4/8/2014 class @CP2

I was so caught up with myself I forgot to post today's card.
I was very productive last week, let's see if I can keep it up!
So today we will be using the new Tim Holtz ink applicators,
these are round so we don't get the harsh edges 
like we do with the rectangle one.
These are also designed with stencils in mind.
We will also be using one of tim's stencils,
a bit of light stamping on the background.
The focal image are inchies.

as always bring your basic class kit
black edger
I used shaded lilac &
broken china distress inks
stencil called bubble
(if you have a favorite stencil feel free to bring it)

April Birthdays are
Nancy Y
we will celebrate on the22nd
